Furman Velson & Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery
I noticed that you had created a nice memorial for Furman Velsor, who is interred at the Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery. Are you a descendant of Furman? I'm also a descendant of a mariner who resided at Sailors' Snug Harbor and is interred at the SSH Cemetery. If you are interested in more information about recent efforts regarding the status of the SSH Cemetery and the SSH Records, you can contact me at the email address listed on my member name profile.

I don't know if you are the person who left the picture of the graves of my grandparents, but if you are, I greatly appreciate it. I had to call Holy Cross Cemetery to get the information but I didn't have a picture of the grave. It is wonderful to have this. We (my extended family) thank you.

Wm H. Gardiner #60365189
Hi David-

Thanks for posting burials in the Huntington Rural Cemetery for my Gardiner family! Are you from the Gardiners also - I am looking for new cousins.

Do you know if there is a listing of the burials in Huntington? I am looking for a source for the burials of the Gardiners there in Huntington Rural Cem. to add source documentation on my family.

I have been looking to prove two different William's but believe they may be the same William, who bounced back and forth from Suffolk and Rockland Counties of NY. The Burr family, who connect to Alma Burr (William Gardiner's mother) also resided in Rockland County, so I know he had ties there.

In 1947, an aunt wrote to the society and was given this information: William H. Gardiner died at the home of his brother Townsend, in Cold Spring Harbor on October 7, 1894. The society listed some current families living in Cold Harbor that may be descendants of the Gardiner Island family. William and Harvey, of whom my aunt was asking about, are believed to be William, who married Lavinia; and, Harvey is the brother (Harvey born 1840). We do know now, that William H. was her grandfather.

If you are a Gardiner desc, you know there may be many tangles. I would love to discuss them with you!

RE: Ida B. Sammis
Hi. It would be nice if they had spaces for more than one last name; however, their rules state to list it as it is listed on the headtone. In this case, it should be Sammis bc that i how it is listed on her headstone. (I uploaded picture.) I have seen people use a space in between two last names but hers would be three last names. She was Ida (Bunce) Sammis Woodruff Satchwell. That is actually how she is listed in wikipedia. She was known as Sammis, even after her remarriages bc of her political career (first of two women elected to NYS legislature). She has either a book or article published and used Sammis as her last name. It was many years after hubby #1 died.

Hi. I was at the Huntington Rural Cemetery and uploaded pics for several Sammis that you manage. Thought you would want to know. They can be found by looking at my virtual cemetery titled Photos Filled.

Wrong Parents for Joseph Perry Barber
I think you might have the wrong parents of "John Barber & Frances

Barker" for your "Joseph Perry Barber".

Our family member Barber was born in St Marys, Maryland about 1869-75

his birth dates are all over the place. All his life he went by the

name of "Joseph P. B. Barber" and Not (Joseph Perry Barber). You can

see this from the 1880 census with his parents,John Barber & Frances

Barker. 1880 census Home is in Mechanicsville, St Marys, Maryland.

The middle initial of (B) in his name i think stood for his mothers

maiden name of "Barker". From 1900 through 1940 censuses, Joseph P.

B. Barber his wife Annie S. and there only child "Willa L. Barber"

born 1910 District of Columbia, Washington, D.C. In all the censuses

he is listed as "Joseph P. B. Barber" even also in the Washington

D.C. Directories. His parents are buried at "All Faith Episcopal Church Cemetery" Mechanicsville, St. Mary's County Maryland.

The Cemetery you have is a mumber of miles south of Mechanicsville, at Joy Chapel Cemetery Hollywood, Md. There would be no reason for him to be buried at Joy Chapel Cemetery Hollywood, Md. When his parents are in "All Faith Episcopal Church Cemetery". From the 1900 census through the 1940 censuses the family live in Washington, D.C. and Not in Baltimore, Md.

His siblings were:
(Amelia G. Barber 1870-)
(Mary Frances Barber 1874-1880) Burial: All Faith Episcopal Church Cemetery.
(John Gwinn Barber 1876-1942) Burial: Congressional Cemetery Washington District of Columbia.
(William C. Barber 1879-1968) Burial: Congressional Cemetery Washington District of Columbia.

Do you know if all the readable graves at Sacred Heart Bushwood, St Marys County MD have been put into FindAGrave. I have some relatives we think are buried there, but not yet found on FG.
Do you know if the church has burial records?

RE: Klear - St. Aloysius, Leonardtown

Yes it was a good error. You accepted yesterday an edit link I submitted for her and her two son's. I always check the acceptance edit messages to the memorials and when I saw the confusion, I was astonished. However, I was busy with another memorial and decided to look at it today. I am not related and they are very distant relative of an in-law of a friend of mine who's family memorials I was doing linkage for. As for additional information for them, I would have to go back into my friend's tree and see what she has. I will let you know though the edit function. However, if you put in the link I sent you on the grandparents memorials it will link their grandson to them...just copy & paste everything into their bio.

It was caught and now fixed. Thank-you, I am sure family members will appreciate it.

Have a good weekend.

Lillian M Darling
Hi David
Thank you "very much" for this transfer. I'm really glad to be able to add to her memorial.
She had an interesting life, born in Ohio, lived in New York and died in Beverly Hills, California.

Unfortunately, I do not know where her 2nd spouse, Albert M. Darling, is buried. He was a sea captain 15 years, a local JP, an elected Sheriff and county Treasurer, a prominent Republican, as well as a retail grocer (Suffolk).
His first wife was Sarah M Tyler, and his second wife was Jennie M Mills. After all that, it seems unusual that we don't know where he is buried.

Thank you for all the help and I probably will ask for another memorial.

RE: Burroughs - Christ Church, Chaptico
Thank you for the update to Susan (Lyon) Burroughs. It's nicely worded.

New Subj: I sent you a message on 14 Dec 2013 based on what I knew then. I now know for sure that SMC native Jane Elizabeth (Bean) Tippett (memorial 28541599) is buried at Oak Lawn Cemetery near Eastpoint in Baltimore County MD. The cemetery has a record of her burial, but the marker is missing. Her husband, SMC native Benjamin Franklin Tippett (memorial 128565263) is buried at Baltimore Cemetery as is his 2nd wife, SMC native Nellie Redman (Adams) [Bean, Tippett] Forney (memorial 128564140). Nellie first married SMC native Thomas Edward Bean (memorial 54878911), Jane's younger brother. Thomas died in 1915 and Nellie moved to Baltimore before 1920 where she lived with Benjamin and Jane Tippett until Jane's death in 1928. She married the widowed Benjamin about 1929. After Benjamin's death in 1955, Nellie married Lewis R. Forney.

FYI, Benjamin and Jane were the parents of my paternal grandmother, Baltimore-born Myrtle Cecelia (Tippett) [Otto] Hill (memorial 14728674). Her last marriage was to james Aubrey Hill Sr and they moved from Baltimore to Solomons MD in the early 1930s. I believe the ancestors of James Aubrey Hill (memorial 14728687) lived in SMC in the 18th and early 19th century before moving to the Solomons/Dowell area of Calvert County, but I have not yet found a solid connection.

RE: Calvin Harvey Smith, Northport Rural
Calvin Harvey Smith was born 12 Dec 1903 probably in Suffolk County. He died Sept 1971 while living in Freeport, Nassau County.

He was divorced from his first wife, Barbara Statesir.

I knew him and his second wife, Rosemary Thornhill Smith. I knew him as Uncle Harve. He is my great uncle. I am pretty sure that he would have been buried in Northport Rural Cemetery. My cousin, Lyn, holds the deeds to the plots currently. Her full name is Marilyn Smith Hahn Nelson.

His parents (John Needa Robbins and Lena Rivers DeVeau Smith) and their parents (James Harvey and Abigail Kelsey Smith) are all buried at Northport Rural Cemetery. My guess would be that James Harvey and Elizabeth Calvin Smith are also buried there.

I do not know the name of James Harvey Smith's father, but his mother was Margaret. This is my brick wall for this family.

If I can share any more info about my family, I am more than willing.
